CREATE YOUR APIS & BACKENDS
Your backends based on NodeJS, Typescript Express, REST/GraphQL/tRPC, Serverless/Docker and AWS.
[What we do]
Pure backends or full-stack from frontend to cloud provisioning. We like crafting all our code with Typescript, with NodeJS on the backend.
If your company has doubled down on the TS/NodeJS/React ecosystem, we can help you scale your team with developers who have also focused their careers in it as well.
[Our technologies and platforms]
We build your service with tools we're masters at
We know our tools intricately. We’re big on Typescript and use it full stack.
We love working with:
NodeJS - Best serverless support
Rest/GraphQL/tRPC - Each API tech has its use
Serverless - #NoOps
Docker - When serverlesss isn't a fit
AWS - Most versatile cloud service
Databases - Mostly PostgreSQL, Mongo, DynamoDB, Redis and various queues.
and the rest, chosen based on the needs of your service.

[Frequently Asked Questions]
The important thing is to
never stop questioning
I want to keep my idea confidential. Will you sign an NDA with me?
Yes, we sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) always when a client wants it. We can do it at the very beginning before we discuss your project's details, or at another stage of the process - it's up to you.
Do I own the intellectual property rights of my application?
Yes, you are the owner of Intellectual Property rights at all times.
Where is your development team located?
We are fully remote. So while we were founded and are still based in Berlin, most developers will be remote from a central European location.
What is the pricing model?
You work with us on a Time & Materials basis. The total cost depends on the actual time the team spends on the development. You are in charge of the project’s scope and set priorities for the development team.
Time & Materials allows flexibility for you to set the direction of development depending on the users’ feedback, market situation, or opportunities that arise during the development.
For more about how we create estimates read how to estimate software projects.
What would my development team look like?
We adjust the team depending on your needs. Our speciality is low overhead teams, where every member is contributing concretely towards customer facing features. That means everyone is either doing development or design.
Roles like Project Manager, Business Analyst and QA are responsibilities which are shouldered by our business oriented developers or designers.
You may take the role of a Product Owner, making decisions on priority and scope.
Can you work as an amendment to our in-house team?
Yes. We can adapt to your tools and processes. I.e. fully integrate into your existing team.
How does the company ensure code quality and maintainability?
We follow best practices, perform code reviews, implement automated testing and continuous integration to ensure code quality and maintainability. All projects are not equal though and the level of automated QA will be determined on your need for quick feedback from the market.
Can you hand the code over to another team?
Yes. We create easily understandable and maintainable code using well known frameworks which don’t require niche knowledge.
The runtime environments we can set up in your ownership from the get-go.
What is the experience level of my team?
Every team has a partner involved in the project. Our developers have a proven track record of outsized throughput. Our culture is one of delivering features every day. That's why we prefer senior developers, but not seniors that are from slow moving enterprise environments.
How am I kept up-to-date of development?
We have fixed length iterations (usually 1 week), at the end of which you will be demoed the current progress. You will have access to team members through Slack, email and video calls and our regular meetings. In addition to this you will have access to our project management tools (Jira or Asana), which we update daily.
